Not good for derby or skating, as the plastic protection panels don't skid at all on smooth surfaces when you fall or go down. This causes you to roll forward, and can hurt more if you're not expecting it. The panels also aren't attached very securely to the pads, after two falls one of the rivets disconnected already, after just a few minutes of wear (and it was a light and straight fall, not hard or at an odd angle).
This is a great helmet - from what I can tell, as a non-expert... Super sturdy, made really well, the gold is glitter, but not TOO glittery (my nephew loves it and he's rough-and-tumble), and it sits well on the head. Only negative (and not really) is that it seems to run a bit big - fortunately it comes with different pads to adjust to fit, so we're good to go!
